I also had my name down within the first couple of hours it was released. At that time I was told by my SA that I am in a very good position to obtain one. And just a few weeks ago, he said I need to submit a short bio for an application so I wrote a 50 words bio of my hobby and what not. He said that any 222 for the next year needs the President's approval but my application should be good. It is supposed to be a new policy pushed down from the top. Since he already said that I am in good shape, I did not bother to pursue more on the how/why.

And rightly so. Youve supported the brand like very few others have.

Probably that's why he got one right-a-way and I needed an essay.

Me neither until I was asked, I thought only Patek does it for application pieces.

So today I am very happy to have this on my wrist. It has a nice amount of weight, the brushed finish is very elegant and for a 37mm it wears surprisingly large.

Its my first thin watch, and I could get used to that.

Its just classy. And I could use a bit of that in my life as it doesnt come naturally for me. So jeans and sneakers tomorrow and a Vacheron Constantin Historique 222 on my wrist

Nice, but based on the title, I was expecting you to have 4 2/3s of them.

Has it always been or since the new release was announced?
